I am a highly qualified, professional historian. I am finishing my MA in Ancient and Classical History from American Public University and I have thousands of hours in research on various historical periods and events. My primary specialty is Sumerology and Akkadian ethnography and will be completing my degree with a thesis on Collapse of Ancient Civilizations. My Bachelors is in Pastoral Ministry and Biblical Studies with a heavy emphasis on interpretational structure analysis and historical settings of the Bible.

At both institutions I was awarded recognition for academic achievement, both in the form of the Kasky-Simmons Theology Award and at American Public University with membership in the Golden Key International Honors Society.

I taught for over a year in South Korea on a variety of subjects, those include History, Science, Geography, and English. I have spent years researching and participating in historical studies and I have attended an initial meeting of the Dallas Paleontological Society and looking forward to being a full member in a short time. I am familiar with all of the major areas of history required by school districts to pass the major and minor exams. My full-time teaching in Korea I taught English, including grammar, writing papers, and spelling. I worked with a variety of students on different levels and different levels of interest. I had some students who were very eager to learn and some who were not and I learned how to work with both sets, often in the same classroom. Also I learned how to work with students who had difficulties such as dyslexia and other learning challenges, this despite the fact that they do not recognize such learning difficulties in their culture. The other subjects were added to my roster after a clear demonstration of my knowledge in those areas. This is a real accomplishment for a teacher in Korea. All of the schools reserve these areas (History, Science, Geography, TOFEL) for the native Korean teachers. When I came to the school I was able to demonstrate that my knowledge and teaching ability on these subjects was better than the native teacher that they had placed in that position.

My teaching style is a combination of different methodologies based on the needs of the person whom I am teaching. No one style will fit all persons but the main methods that I use are discussion, (Q&A), and hands-on. I do like to use visuals such as pictures, slides, and other presentation methods when appropriate or available but mostly I will have an open book and speak from that. I do pictures to make the history and or subject more interactive and mentally stimulating as well as memorable. I believe that the more a student is active in the classroom using their five senses the more that they will process and retain. I even like to put a dash or more of humor into each presentation to make the student feel at ease and let them know it is fun.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Government & Politics

As a historian with broad interdiscinplinary work I have received training in political theory and structures. I can provide with insight and help understanding current US Government structure and theory as well as cover general principles of different systems around the world.

World History

I am a professional historian. I have a Masters of Arts in Ancient and Classical History and along with that additional training in various other historical periods. I can cover the majority of historical period for various places. Also I show you methods for effective learning outside of tutoring and the classroom to enhance your knowledge.
